SPIDER SONGS & RHYMES
 

FOUR LITTLE BUGS

One little bug went out to play,
On a spider’s web one day.
He had ever so much fun,
He called for another bug to come.

Two little bugs went out to play,
On a spider’s web one day.
They had ever so much fun,
They called for another bug to come.

Three little bugs went out to play,
On a spider’s web one day.
They had ever so much fun,
They called for another bug to come.

Four little bugs went out to play,
On a spider’s web one day.
They got stuck, all in a bunch.
And along came spider, in time for lunch!
                                    Jean Warren

Let a small group of children act out this rhyme.
Have one child start and call in a friend at the appropriate time.
When all four children are crawling around the web, choose
A fifth child to be the spider, who crawls in and eats them up.
 

SPIDERS INVITATION
Tune:  “Down By The Station”

Early in the morning
The spiders love to spin,
Then by and by
The flies drop in.

And when they come,
The spiders always say,
“We’re glad you came
For dinner today”!

EENSY WEENSY SPIDER

Tune:  “Eensy Weensy Spider”

Eensy weensy spider
Went up the water spout.
Counting out inches
As he climbed about.

One inch, two inch
Three inch – four
Up, up he goes
On the spout by the door.

Five inch, six inch,
Seven inch – eight
Hurry little spider
Don’t be late.

Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
But as he slid down
Backwards he did count!
8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

THE BIG BLACK SPIDER
The big black spider
Made a web on the tree.
It was big and round,
You would agree.
She might catch a bug,
She might catch a bee.
But the big black spider,
Can not catch me!
              Jean Warren

 
SPIDER DANCE

Tune: “Farmer In The Dell”

Spiders crawl around, (children crawl around)
Spiders up and down, (stand up, bend down)
Spiders, spiders make a web, ( join right hands to form a spoke)
Spiders circle ‘round. (walk around in a circle together)

Spiders in and out, (crawl fingers on left hand, down and back on right arm)
Spiders all about, (repeat crawl action)
Spiders, spiders make a web,
Spiders now sit down. (children sit down)
Jean Warren

THE EENSY WEENSY SPIDER
Tune: "Eensy Weensy Spider"
 
The Eensy Weensy Spider
Crawled up the porch at night.
She spun a web,
It was a scary sight.
 
When the children
On Halloween night.
Came Trick-or-Treating
She gave them all a fright!
BOO!
Jean Warren
 
BUSY SPIDER

Tune: "This Old Man"
 
Busy Spider, he made one
Great big web on a drum,
With a spin, spin, spin
'Round and 'round he goes.
He puts on, quite a show.

Busy Spider, he made two
Great big webs on some shoes.
With a spin, spin, spin
'Round and 'round he goes.
He puts on, quite a show.

Busy Spider, he made three
Great big webs on a tree.
With a spin, spin, spin,
'Round and 'round he goes.
He puts on quite a show.

Busy Spider, he made four
Great big webs on the door.
With a spin, spin, spin,
'Round and 'round he goes.
When he sleeps, no one knows!
Jean Warren

FOUR LITTLE SPIDERS
Four little spiders, spinning all day
Hoping some flies would come their way.
"I caught one", the first one said .
I think I'll now go home to bed.

Three little spiders, spinning all day
Hoping some flies would come their way.
Before too long, the second one said,
"I caught one, I'm off to bed".

Two little spiders, spinning all day
Hoping some flies would come their way.
All of a sudden, one came through
And the third little spider went home, too!

One little spider, spinning all day
Hoping some flies would come his way.
Finally, he caught one in his web
And got to go home to his bed.
Jean Warren

[Let children act this out with some children being the spiders and others being the flies.]

 
SING A SONG OF SPIDERS
Tune:  “Sing A Song of Six Pense”

Sing a song of spiders,
Up in a tree.
Six shinny spiders,
Sliding down by me.

When they came near,
I began to run.
Sitting under spiders
Isn’t lots of fun!
